So true! You have NO IDEA what it looks/sounds like!
I started with this group on my mountain bike, and tried to follow a group of 4 fast skaters (probably 16-18mph??)...that didnt last long, they left me (I was out of shape then). Then I did the same thing on a road bike, and watching them skate in unison is what inspired me to start skating.
THEN....when I did the bike/skate combo group, I could HEAR the 2 skaters behind me (19-20mph)....it sounded like they were tearing the pavement up! I had to peel back for a short while and just watch...amazing!
Did this group last night (before I got my flat tire 9 miles in) and we had one skater and 3 bikes. Our skater loved having me directly in front of her, instead of the 2 girls that were in front of me. I'm taller and she had a much higher blockade to ride behind!
